    110 Japanese women have had abortions after new prenatal test showed abnormalities

    Jun 28, 2014

    A total of 7,740 pregnant women took a new prenatal test for chromosomal abnormalities in unborn babies in the year after its introduction in Japan in April 2013, and 110 of them had abortions after testing positive, data showed Friday.

    Of all women who took the new prenatal test, which involves maternal blood sampling, 142, or 1.8 percent, tested positive. The 110 who had abortions are among 113 women whose positive results in the new test were later confirmed by amniotic fluid and other tests, according to the data, released by a research team from hospitals that conduct the new test.

    Of the three others, two suffered miscarriages and one hopes to give birth to her child, who has been confirmed to have Down syndrome, the team said.

    The unborn babies of 70 of the 113 women with confirmed positive results were diagnosed as having Down syndrome. The babies of 34 women were confirmed to have Edwards syndrome, with three copies of chromosome 18 instead of two, and those of nine women had Patau syndrome, with an extra chromosome 13.

    “The women who opted for abortion made their decisions, concluding after serious consideration that they had been left with no other choice,” Showa University professor Akihiko Sekizawa said.

    The team said it is also necessary to enhance support for people with disabilities so as not to discourage women pregnant with babies with handicaps from giving birth.

    The average age among the 7,740 women was 38.3 years. Of them, 95 percent cited their age as the reason why they took the new prenatal test.

    Remember the good 'ol days when HH sat in the background and let the others do all the talking????

    Feels to me that we finally made it back and looks that way also.

    Now just avoid another 4/29/09!

    BTW... The Quest deal just reaffirms that we are the BEST at turn around times & no-calls...

    Think about it, if I'm a OB/GYN or MFS, I might do a few hundred in a year. At that rate it might take me AWILE to fiqure out that I'm not offering the best test to my Moms. How many tests and how long did it take Quest.

    The more tests you do, the faster you move to MT21+....Don't you think Harry & Paul would of chose SQNM if they could of?????

    Funny how the "others" are throwing their $$$ at the global market. Look at the major sponsors for this conference. Maybe they know something we don't about the IP issue in the USA???
